Shortwave Pirate Radio




Shortwave pirate radio broadcasts are some of the most original & entertaining programming one can hear. These stations bring the reality that radio can be spontaneous, creative & unrestrained along with a direct connection to the listener, even if they're across the ocean!

The recordings from the 90's were made with a Grundig Satellit 500/random longwire (94'-96') & a Drake R8A/50ft. sloper (96'-00') on both reel to reel & cassette. Unless noted, the rest of these (2000 & up) were recorded using a Ten Tec RX-340 receiver and various antenna configurations along the way (T2FD/phased Wellbrook loops/EWE/& DX Engineering's 4 Sq. system) by minidisc & currently hardrive media using Audacity recording software through an M-Audio Delta 66 interface via the Ten Tec's DC-Coupled audio tap for SSB or Sherwood Engineering's SE-3 for AM. Also, the majority of these stations were recorded from North East Florida. Some of these I do not have exact dates/times/frequencies, but will add the info later if found.

Keep in mind the nature of shortwave as conditions can change to varying degrees and some of the recordings are better than others, but always entertaining!

This collection is from the 1990's up to Sept. of 2011 - for more recent recordings please also see http://www.archive.org/details/ShortwavePirateRadioCont

Enjoy : )

Subject: zip file corrupt
Its a shame that the zip file is corrupt, so it's not possible to unzip all the content! Beside that it's a wonderful collection of RAdio. Thanks for that!
